AUA Secures CAAM-HP Accreditation

American University of Antigua College of Medicine’s MD program was granted accreditation by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP) this June. CAAM-HP was established in 2003 and is the legally constituted body established to accredit medical, dental, veterinary, and other health professions programs leading to professional degrees required for practice in Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member states.

Gaining accreditation by CAAM-HP involved a demanding review process that assesses every facet of AUA’s medical program. This accreditation is exclusive to medical schools that meet or exceed the highest industry standards.

In their report, the visiting team commends AUA for:

·      the caliber, enthusiasm, diversity of its students and their performance on USMLE examination,

·      its physical facilities and educational resources,

·      the highly motivated and dedicated faculty and administration.

Executive Dean of the Basic Sciences, Dr. Jagbir Nagra, said, “This is an important accreditation; it is testament to the strength of our program, our faculty and our students. We are proud to receive this most recent accreditation. It is the latest in a long line of approvals and recognitions for AUA.”

American University of Antigua College of Medicine is one of six extant private medical schools in the Caribbean to be accredited by CAAM-HP.
